Flat Cats watch a parade

This was actually our last day on vacation, but we were so excited to show you our new friend...
We were all waiting for the parade in Red Wing, Minnesota to begin, in celebration of the River City Days, and look what we found...can you see her? Ninja, the guinea pig was sitting right beside us on the parade route!!! Her lovely owner let us get photographed with Ninja...we've never seen a guinea pig before, we were a bit afraid she would nibble on our cardboard selves!

Just to clarify...the flat cats shown are (l-r) Smokey, Tanner and Devon, then cousin Pirate and cousin Sophie.
The parade was a lot of fun...there were floats from all over. Here's one from Anoka, MN...the Halloween capital. We were excited to see that they have two parades in October...wonder if mom will bring us back? We are the Halloween trio afterall...
Our neighbors came down to watch the parade with us...look at all those stickers! She was one happy girl!!
Fun drummers...

This video takes the cake though...it isn't the best of quality, but it is a group from the nursing home, and they are playing bedpans!! ROFL

More on our trip tomorrow...
